Fanfiction Reading Challenge 2019 Update #1




I figured I’d do an update for the 2019 Fanfiction Reading Challenge!

I originally planned on writing and posting this update waaaayyy before now - but life, the universe, and everything got in the goddamned way! Lol.

This challenge is hosted by the lovely Carrie @ Cat on the Bookshelf, and I picked option 2 – which is a list of types of fics.

Nerd Church - My New Self-Care Strategy


(Warning: this post discusses low self-esteem and Depression)


I have a plan!


My plan is this: to treat myself BETTER than I think I deserve.


'Hang on Cee!' I hear you cry (well, I don't but it's a structural narrative device,) 'What the hell are you talking about?!'

Let's rewind.

Friday Fics Fix - Twists and Turns






'Trying to talk to Five is like talking to a brick wall that thinks it’s smarter than you and disappears as soon as it gets bored, which is quickly.'

Comics Wrap-Up - God is a Woman

Once a year, there is the event of all comics-y-ness - San Diego Comic Con (SDCC).

Unfortunately, most of us can't sell our souls to get to SDCC...

...but fortunately, the trailers the big companies release there trickle out over the next couple of weeks, and the big announcements are pretty much immediate!

Nerd Church - Trump Is A Racist, and Other Obvious Things That Still Have To Be Said





(Warning: this post discusses all things Trump, inc. racism, bigotry, and alleged sexual assault, inc. Jeffrey Epstein and paedophilia)


Trump is a racist.

He is a sexist, a homophobe, an ableist, a transphobe, an Islamophobe.

Trump is pretty much any kind of bigot or general a**hole you can think of.

I don't know why people are still surprised, but some people seem to be.

Friday Fics Fix - Death Can't Stop a Jedi... From Pranking




'"In the meantime, I'm going to annoy our son back into the Light," Han said with restored good cheer.

"That's not how it works," Leia said.

"Has anyone tried?"'

Sometimes, I just love the randomness of fanfiction.

Like, if you hype up Hollywood writers on a lot of coffee, deprive them of sleep, and then give them action figures to play with, you get fanfic authors.

And that, my dearest nerdlets, is just one of the many beautiful things about the internet.




So this fic is based on the modern Star Wars films, and has a butt-tonne of SPOILERS, ok? Ok.

Comics Wrap-Up - You're the Perfect Distraction

You know what Thursday means? Superhero-y comics-y goodness! Woo!

Everything this week falls into the 'Other Stuff' category - which, as always, is Loki's fault.

It's also kind of superhero-adjacent, because that's just the way the cards fall sometimes *shrugs*
